      It’s both funny and familiar to see these two incredibly different personalities thrust together for what’s meant to be a short ride. [SXSW work-in-progress review]

      The naggy tension between the leads turns into a fine chemistry. [SXSW work-in-progress review]

      A comedy that’s really quite hyper-violent, a little nasty in tone, and never as funny as it should be. [SXSW work-in-progress review]

      The demands of action and comedy, however, are apparently much too great a weight for this action-comedy to Lyft.

      Nanjiani just kills when he’s grabbing stereotypes (meek, moral South Asians, overly-polite drivers) and shaking them to their senses. But the wisecracks thin out and grate when the violence takes center stage. And Stuber is stupidly violent.

      Slant Magazine

      More than its violence, the film is defined by its vileness, its straight-faced attachment to outmoded ideas about masculinity and law enforcement.

      San Francisco Chronicle

      This film is like cynicism transformed into celluloid, a movie made without love and with no vision, except of dollar signs.
